In terms of IT compliance having valid GPOs is essential. They must be update to date and the GPO directory should be free of any unlinked GPOs. Retrieving a list of unlinked GPOs in the management console is impossible. With PowerShell it is quite easy.
Through 20 ears of effort, we’ve successfully trained everyone to use passwords that are hard for humans to remember, but easy for computers to guess.
If you are a Hacker News binge reader such as me, you might have read this article: The Guy Who Invented Those Annoying Password Rules Now Regrets Wasting Your Time.
This article reminded my of how stupid current password guidelines are and that we need to change that. A few months ago I wrote a random password generator function and decided that it needs an update to make the generated passwords more memorable.

In certain cases SharePoint alerts are more useful than workflows, f.e. having the possibility to let users manager their alerts is not possible with workflows.
To manager alerts for a couple of users on specific lists I’ve written a script that handles the whole cycle of alerts. It let me delete, update and create alerts based on predefined configuration.
